FDA expands warning on tainted diet pills

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

(WFLX) - If your New Year's resolution is to lose weight, the FDA warns you to think twice before taking diet pills.

The Food and Drug Administration is adding an additional 41 products to an alert about tainted diet pills issued last month bringing the total to 69.

The pills contain undeclared drugs the FDA says may put your health at risk causing seizures, heart attacks or strokes.

Investigators examining the supplements found they contained dangerous ingredients not listed on the product labels.

For the FDA'S list of the diet supplements and risky ingredients, go to the FDA's Web site.
